Constant Bashing of Americans

I just want to say I'm sick of all these assholes on here bashing Americans. Apparently, we have no taste, and we all need easily accessible pop music to appeal to our lame musical tastes. I just want to say that I'm an American who appreciates everything U2 has ever done. The songs on Pop ring just as true to me as The Joshua Tree, Achtung, Boy, War, ATCLB and now HTDAAB. So you people out there bashing us americans can kiss my fucking ass. This forum is nothing but a hostile battleground anymore. Expressing opinions in a friendly matter is fine. But to attack each other like this is pathetic. It's only the fucking internet. It's only a fucking rock band we're talking about. Nothing worth fighting about. It's not my fault that the corporations are controlling the music industry. It's not my fault that rock music isn't as popular as it used to be. If it were up to me, rock music would rule all.

yeah. i'm not really enjoying it either.

as an American, i realize that there are a lot of reasons to dislike my country. i'll be the first to admit the things that our wrong with America.

but i like U2 just like everyone else. being American doesn't make me less of a fan.

Are you trying to piss the whiney foreigners off by implying your country owns two continents?

Haha yes we did elect Bushy for another 4 more years and we're also now trying to figure out how to get him into the UK Music Hall of Fame too.

Because it's quite clear that we lost our minds!
